St Michael's Church

This is the oldest building in the medieval town, built soon after the Norman Conquest and enlarged throughout the Middle Ages and in the 19C. A distinctive feature of the church is the elegant 18C stone spire. Inside are extremely attractive black Tournai marble fonts dating from around 1170, two 15C brass lecterns and the 1567 tomb of Sir Richard Lyster, who once occupied the Tudor House in Blue Anchor Lane.
